Eugene Kates 1914-2007

For 73 years, generations of kids have had learned to love the environment through their summers at Camp Arowhon in Ontario's Algonquin Park. Founded by his mom and now run by his daughter, Eugene Kates ran it with an iron hand from the time he returned from WW2 until he handed it over to Joanne, after which he ran Arowhon Pines (and made it green). I wanted to say something about how important these experiences were to so many, how anyone who is privileged to spend time in Algonquin Park is changed by it, but Seth Godin is a better writer. ::Seth Godin
